BJ’s Wholesale Club is securing a larger footprint in the Sunshine State.

The Westborough, Mass.-based membership warehouse club will open a new site on Jan. 21—marking the company’s 34th club in Florida.

The new club will be located at 19150 Quesada Ave. in Port Charlotte. It will feature fresh foods and produce, a full-service deli, household essentials, pet supplies and the retailer’s signature treasure-hunt experience for BJ’s members. The location will offer curbside pickup, pickup in-club and same-day delivery. The club will also include a fueling facility, which is the company's 155th gas station.

Angel Gual, club manager of BJ’s Wholesale Club in Port Charlotte, said the company is looking forward to welcoming its newest members to this location.

“We’re excited to expand our footprint in Florida, with the opening our new club in Port Charlotte,” said Gual. “We’re looking forward to bringing BJ’s outstanding offerings to Port Charlotte and the surrounding community. We can’t wait for our doors to open on Friday and serve our members and community in this new year.”

Continuing to eye expansion, BJ’s CEO Bob Eddy told analysts last fall in a conference call discussing quarterly results that BJ’s would continue to look to open more new locations.

Earlier this month BJ’s opened a new club in Commack, N.Y., on Jan. 7. The new location is located at 2 Veterans Memorial. The warehouse club also recently opened a club in South Fayette Township, Pa., on Dec. 10 at 4000 Victoria Street in Bridgeville.
